ONE chairman Chatri Sityodtong would love to see ONE s best vs UFC s best

ONE Championship chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong would love to see the best martial artists from his promotion go against the best that the UFC has to offer. During a Facebook Live Q&A session, ONE’s head honcho admitted that he would indeed love to see the best of the East go head to head against the best of the West. “I would definitely love to see the best of the East versus the best of the West. UFC versus ONE Championship,” Chatri said. “I think, would be phenomenal, I think the whole entire world would watch it, and I’d love to see world champions versus world champions, so definitely, for sure, I’m open to it.” Imagine ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon Vera taking on UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic, or how about ONE Middleweight World Champion Aung La N Sang testing himself against UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya? Who would win in a featherweight bout between ONE champion Martin Nguyen and UFC champion Alexander Volkanovski? A ONE vs. UFC card would definitely provide some very exciting moments. This isn’t the first time that Chatri spoke about ONE and the UFC crossing paths however. Back in 2017, Chatri said he would welcome a cross-promotion invitation from UFC President Dana White. “I would love Dana White to give me a call and say: 'Let's do a UFC World Champion vs a ONE World Champion – let's do a cross promotion.' That is something I am very interested in,” he said. Later on in the Facebook Live Q&A session, Chatri brought up the ONE vs. UFC angle once again when asked what match he would like to see in Women’s MMA. “For women’s mixed martial arts, I would love to see Xiong Jing Nan vs. Zhang Wei Li,” Chatri responded. China’s Xiong Jing Nan is the ONE Women’s Strawweight World Champion, while compatriot Zhang Wei Li is the UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion. Chatri also expressed his confidence in former two-sport ONE world champion Stamp Fairtex. “I think Xiong is the one to beat Zhang, but I think also Stamp Fairtex could beat Zhang Wei Li as well.” “Stamp Fairtex against any female striker in the world or any female MMA fighter in the world, even though she’s only 4-0 in MMA, she’s a complete beast,” he added. Chatri also used this opportunity to highlight one of the promotion’s biggest stars and most dominant champions, ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee. “I think Angela Lee vs. any atomweight in the world, Angela Lee is incredible, I have seen her in training, I have seen her go into a bout with pneumonia, with doctors’ advice not to compete, I tried my best to stop the fight, Angela Lee is an absolute warrior and she’s a genius in the ground,” he expressed. Lee could have her hands full when she returns to the cage however, as she’s set to face Filipina top contender Denice Zamboanga, who has torn through the women’s atomweight division with wins over big names such as Jihin Radzuan and two-time title challenger Mei Yamaguchi. Chatri continued to give his female champions praise when asked who the baddest woman on the ONE Championship roster was. Who’s the baddest woman in ONE Championship? I would have to give it to either…three females come into mind: Xiong Jing Nan, Angela Lee, and Stamp Fairtex,” he stated. “It’s too hard for me to pick which one is the best, but all three are genuine world champions who could run through every female in the planet in their weight class, in any martial art, they’re just complete monsters, it’s incredible.”.....»»
